Real estate comes down to individual stories and relationships, rather than big faceless companies and automated transactions.
This past week, we had the opportunity to learn about Jon Linders' story. In 2012, Jon decided to take advantage of the buyers market and reached out Pickett Street’s lead buyers agent Jillian Farrar. He bought a new three-bedroom townhouse for $230,000 with a 10% down payment. Jon lived there with two friends in order to more quickly pay down his mortgage.
After a year, Jon had saved enough to buy a $120,000 condo. In order to save money on property management fees, he managed the property himself.
In 2016, he moved out into a 400-square-foot apartment so he could rent both the townhouse and the condo. Finally, in 2018, he used the cash flow from this rental income to buy a two-story, single-family home for $500,000, where he now lives happily with his dog. 🐶

When is the last time you spent money because you wanted to?
When's the last time you went out on a date? (A REAL date.)
Some of you it's far too often, and you can keep scrolling, but many of you need to be reminded to LIVE! GO OUT! EAT WELL! SPOIL YOURSELF!
If you're constantly putting every penny to things other than your own happiness you may lose your mind and eventually explode. #ItsScience
I don't want that!
The people you love want you to dip into that "opportunity fund" and have a good time... and do it soon.
Can I get an AMEN!?!?!
